There are a lot of elements that go into the making of any great video game, and this same mindset reigns no truer than in Pokemon Games. From the Pokemon found within each given game to the overall plots for each of them, there are quite of few things that goes into a cutting-edge Pokemon Game. One of the most important factors among all others are the supporting characters of a certain Pokemon Game, ones that literally puts the game over the top. And that’s exactly why we are going listed the best Supporting Character from Pokemon Games thus far!

The majority of Supporting Characters found within this video game franchise are primarily seen in a player’s Rivals and Friends, but sometimes a Champion of a given region plays a crucial role within a game too. No matter their role of their given game, these select few are the best Pokemon has had to offer so far, and we’ll make sure to explain exactly what makes each of these characters so great!

We would like to note that these selections are in no particular order, that they are not ranked from worst to greatest. We would also like to share that at any given time, you can share your thoughts in Comments Section below each and every page. Whether you think we missed a character or nailed one of our picks, we would love to hear from you either way!

But before we begin, we’d like to share the few Supporting Characters that just missed making our list. These extras are still great characters and each of them contributed to their given games, but each just came up a little short compared to others. These characters include Cheren, Cynthia, Steven and Serena: Cheren played a unique role in the drama of Team Plasma, but he ended up being more or less a lot like what Silver already was (to a much lesser extent); Cynthia and Steven are among the most popular Pokemon Champions ever, and though each helped a trainer along the way throughout their given regions, players usually remember them as a tough trainer rather than a key supporting character; and Serena was great in the anime series, but her X/Y character came up lacking when compared to it.
